EFCC: Fani-Kayode dragged to court over fake medical report

Former aviation minister and a member of All Progressive Congress, has been dragged before the Special Offences Court in Ikeja, over his procurement of fabricated medical report by Economic Financial Crime Commission.

FANI KAYODE 60 YEARS/MALE/HOSP. NO.00345 DATED 11/10/2021 and purported same to have been issued by Kubwa General Hospital.”

It noted that the offence is contrary to and punishable under section 88(1) (a) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015.

Fani-Kayode had been having a running battle with the EFCC for some time and he was once remanded for 67 days in 2016 alongside a former minister of finance, Nevada Usman.

The duo and two others were facing a 17-count of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering to the tune of N4.9 billion.

They denied the allegations, and each of them was later granted N250 million bail
